Werner is a great age incredibly quick can play through the middle or out wide in fact he’s been even more successful coming in from a wide position which would allow him to play with Tammy and he is a consistent goal scorer 31 goals in 40 games this season and 11 in 29 for Germany and at £49m isn’t ridiculous money.
He would be a fabulous signing having watched him in Europe he really excited me but we haven’t signed him yet and until we do unfortunately this just remains speculation.
If Werner were to eventually sign for Chelsea the reasons why might have been unveiled in his quote back in March.
“At this time in professional soccer there are two different variations. The first is to be part of a team like Liverpool or Manchester City.
“They have a good working team. The teams have also great coaches.
“But this is the question: do you want to go to that kind of team, because the situation is already that hard for each member and you want to be a part of it? That’s one point you have to look at.
“The other side are teams which need some big changes, because they just won a few big titles, “but they are not able to compete on the highest level anymore.”

Mak, it still has to happen but Werner was always my prefered signing. Didn’t think we would get him though and we still haven’t so I’m not getting too excited yet.
Sean, “if” Werner signs along with Zilyich and what have we should have a good chance of getting into the top 4 next season I think we might slip away this season when it restarts.4th June 2020 at 8:12 pm in reply to: Newcastle takeover and the craziest PL transfer rumours! #113657
Assuming the takeover for Newcastle goes ahead it’s very important for Newcastle to attract the right Manager and whatever transfer budget is actually available there’s still the hurdle of talking top players into joining a project in the North East of England who aren’t yet in Europe.
They’ll get there in the end though if everything comes together but it will take time imo. The Geordie lads deserve a bit if success.
He’s still got to sign Sean.😊
I never believe anything until I read the confirmation on the official Chelsea site be a great signing for Chelsea “if” it happens though.
If he does sign for Chelsea it means that Chelsea has met the asking price and Werner has been promised regular starts by Lampard.
Still all speculation though.4th June 2020 at 6:02 pm in reply to: Newcastle takeover and the craziest PL transfer rumours! #113648
I think he wants to play for Klopp Sean and I think that’s probably where he’ll end up the only doubt is how many games he might get with a front three of Mane, Firmino and Salah assuming they all remain at Liverpool next season which I think they will.
Although Sky Germany are reporting Chelsea are favourites to sign Werner?

Sean,I wouldn’t want Chelsea to pay more than circa £35/40m for Chilwell and I would be suprised if Marina paid too much more than that which is seemingly a long way from Leicester’s expectations and they have a history of demanding significant fees ie Mahrez and Maguire.
I like Werner and would be happy to see him at Chelsea but I think he wants to go to Liverpool and play for Klopp and it looks like a done deal to me with Liverpool just haggling over how much they are prepared to pay for him.

So many rumours though it’s even more difficult this Summer to separate fact from fiction. Cheers 9’s

“Chelsea are reportedly ready to make a £100m double swoop for Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell this summer.
According to a report in The Sun, Blues boss Frank Lampard is ready to add the pair to his squad in a bid to mount a serious title challenge next season.
The report states that Gabon hitman Aubameyang could be sold for £30m, with the Gunners preferring to strike a bargain deal for the player rather than lose him for nothing next summer.”
I would imagine Chelsea would be the last Club that Arsenal would agree to sell Aubemayang too although we did sell them big Pete and Luiz.😊
Neither can I see Marina being prepared to pay anything like the bandied about fee of £70/85m for Chilwell and nor should she imo.
An indication of the potential impact of Coronavirus on even our biggest Clubs if the report below is accurate which seemingly comes with a Spurs Club statement which suggests it might be. Spurs are unlikely to be alone.
“Spurs have confirmed that they have loaned £175million from the Bank of England due to fears that they could lose in excess of £200m in revenue due to the coronavirus crisis over the next year.
With their remaining nine matches of the Premier League season to be played behind closed doors and the possibility of having to play at their empty 62,000-seater Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until 2021, Spurs are braced for massive losses due to a drop in matchday and commercial income.
Other events at the newly-built £1billion stadium are also set to be cancelled, such as concerts, boxing fights and NFL games.
Spurs are also braced for TV rebates, with a £170million pushed back to the 2020-21 season to protect immediate cash flows but further rebates possible if the league’s return is further delayed.
And so the north London club have sought help from the government’s Covid Corporate Financing Facility, which will provide them with an unsecured loan, repayable with a 0.5 per cent interest rate.
It is a major insight into how badly the repercussions of the deadly virus – which has claimed the lives of nearly 400,000 people worldwide according to official statistics – will affect even the richest of clubs.
Spurs – who this week confirmed they have had one positive coronavirus result in the latest round of Premier League testing – had the eighth-highest revenue in Europe prior to the coronavirus pandemic according to the 2020 Deloitte Football Money League.
And a study by the University of Liverpool in April claimed that Spurs had overtaken Manchester City as the most valuable Premier League club, worth around £2.56bn following their world-record £113m profit for the tax year ending in June 2019.
A Tottenham statement read: “The global pandemic has created unprecedented economic and social challenges and the entertainment sector has been particularly affected.
“We are yet to see the full extent and duration of the economic impact. As of today, it is unclear when there will be a return to spectator-attended live events.
“Due to the significance of income from matchday, conferencing and third party live events such as concerts and other sports, our estimated revenue loss, including broadcast rebates, may exceed £200m for the period to June, 2021.”

Premier League crack down on stars as training ground visits made
Spurs explained that the money will not be used for player acquisitions but “to ensure we have financial flexibility and additional working capital during these challenging times”.
Back in April, the Champions League runners-up were forced into reversing their decision to sign up to the government’s furlough scheme to cut the salaries of non-playing staff to 80 per cent for the foreseeable future.
They added: “The Club has opened a multi-use venue designed to deliver diversified revenue streams and created jobs, homes and schools as part of the regeneration of our neighbourhood.
“We are ever-conscious of the responsibility we bear to ensure the future stability of our Club for all stakeholders and, in doing so, support our communities and our continued investment in the area.”
Premier League clubs handed boost as friendlies given thumbs up
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said: “We have always run this Club on a self-sustaining commercial basis.
“I said as early as 18 March that, in all my 20 years at the Club, there have been many hurdles along the way but none of this magnitude – the COVID-19 pandemic has shown itself to be the most serious of them all. Express 4/06
300 Porto fans travel and are outside the Stadium for their Famalico away game as the Portuguese League resumes last night. Worrying.
“Almost 300 Porto fans travelled to their game against Famalicao on Wednesday and congregated outside the stadium, letting off flares and with little social distancing being observed.” SkySports.

5 substitutes agreed by the PL Clubs for the remaining games?
“The Premier League has confirmed that teams will be able to make five substitutions per match for the remainder of the 2019/20 season, as well as naming nine subs on the bench.
The decision follows the Bundesliga’s path in allowing teams extra substitutions, with concerns over the fitness of players, their susceptibility to injury following the restart, and the fact that games will be played in the warmer months of June and July.
A statement read: “Premier League Shareholders today agreed temporary changes to the rules relating to substitute players.
“For the remainder of the 2019/20 season, the number of substitutes that can be used during a match will increase from three to five play
“This is in line with the temporary law amendment made by the International Football Association Board last month.
“Shareholders also approved for Clubs to increase the maximum number of substitute players on the bench from seven to nine for the rest of the 2019/20 season.” Standard 4/06

Very good feature 442, thanks for that. That was the beginning imo.4th June 2020 at 8:51 am in reply to: Newcastle takeover and the craziest PL transfer rumours! #113623
Leicester allegedly want £85m for Ben Chilwell 🙂 🙂 🙂3rd June 2020 at 4:33 pm in reply to: Newcastle takeover and the craziest PL transfer rumours! #113621
Mav, re PEA he is 31 and in the final year of his contract if Arsenal can’t get him to sign a new contract they will either have to sell him for a reduced fee this Summer or chance losing him for nothing next Summer.3rd June 2020 at 4:31 pm in reply to: Newcastle takeover and the craziest PL transfer rumours! #113620
Chelsea are signing over half a billion £’s worth of players this Summer according to the media and Agents.lol.😊
There’s not even any dates set yet for the transfer window to open and close everything is just pure speculation at the moment most of it driven by the internet and the media.
Of course Clubs are making enquiries about availability of players via Agents and Clubs and sounding out likely potential fees but this will be a very different Summer transfer window as even the biggest of Clubs are under financial pressure and there are concerns and a reluctance to paying too much for a player whose value may well have considerably dropped due to Cov19.3rd June 2020 at 12:39 pm in reply to: Newcastle takeover and the craziest PL transfer rumours! #113611
Pagan, I think Derby are facing a broader investigation under FFP by the EFL. It’s sad to see Derby where they are now and it would be good to see them back in the PL without their current problems.
Putting aside whatever issues Derby County might have to face with FFP personally I’m very sceptical and concerned about a Club being stripped of the ownership of their Ground having lived through what we did as Chelsea supporters when Stamford Bridge ended up being bought by Marler Estates primarily from Brian Mears.
Chelsea FC went very close to being homeless because of the abive.
Splitting the ownership of a ground from its Club is a bad and dangerous strategy imo and should be avoided at all costs whether it does or doesn’t break FFP rules.2nd June 2020 at 8:29 pm in reply to: Newcastle takeover and the craziest PL transfer rumours! #113600
Pagan, Derby are still under investigation for breaking the EFL’s FFP rules according to the Derbyshire Telgraph. I can’t see it being a strategy that other Clubs will be looking to follow.

Mav, I’m not sure you’re reading my posts but no Club in the PL can lose more than an average of circa £100m in the PL over 3 seasons. Newcastle lost £20m over the last two Seasons of their accounts.
“But they will be allowed to spend big bucks,@ least until they are qualified for Europe,and then they will be coming under scrutiny.”
They won’t Mav Newcastle will still be under the scrutiny of the PL FFP rules albeit the losses allowed under under PL rules are a little more generous but PL FFP rules wouldn’t allow Newcastle to spend the kind of money you suggest.
Like it or not those are the rules mate let’s leave it there and assuming the takeover goes ahead see what Newcastle’s net transfer spend is in the Summer. Cheers 9’s
